The challenge? To make a film in only 48 hours!
Filmmakers from all over the Toronto, CA area will compete to see who can make the best short film in only 48 hours. The winning film will go up against films from around the world at Filmapalooza 2017 for a chance at the grand prize and an opportunity to screen at the Cannes Film Festival 2017, Court Métrage.
If you're thinking about creating a team, or looking to join a team, or you're just interesting in having a drink with a bunch of Toronto filmmakers, then this is the meet & greet for you. Once you arrive at the Madison, look for the Toronto 48HFP signs...the place is huge but you'll find us.
Room: to be announced; signs will be posted. Please arrive at 5:30pm for registration. Only two members from each team are allowed in the kick-off room...but additional team members are welcome in the main bar areas. Note: the Madison is an all-ages establishment, so everyone is welcome in the venue.
